Watmore already showing his worth to club and country

Apart from beating Newcastle for the sixth time in a row, there has been very little positive to write about Sunderland. One positive so far this season however, has been the introduction of 21-year-old Duncan Watmore. The winger has been a breathe of fresh air in a very poor Sunderland side and it has been nice to see the youngster get his chance. He proved what a key player he could be on his Premier League debut vs Norwich. The...

From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows for Sunderland

Well, it’s been a whirlwind two weeks for Sunderland Football Club. We went from stuffing the mags 3-0, again, making it six in a row, to conceding six goals of our own just a week later. This made it the fifth time in a row we’ve beaten Newcastle, and then lost our following game. But anyway, let’s start with a positive. We did it again. We beat the mags to make it six in a row and this one has been all the more sweeter as, until...

Can Sunderland make it six in a row?

If there’s one game that every Sunderland fan looks out for at the start of the season, it is the Wear-Tyne derby. This weekend, friendships and relationships are put on hold as one of the fiercest rivalries in English football commences. For us Black Cats fans, we dream of making it six in a row against our bitter rivals. The build-up to derby day is filled with a rollercoaster of emotions. These emotions usually kick in early in the...

Big Sam is the man to keep Sunderland up

Sam Allardyce’s odds have been slashed recently as he looks set to become to new Sunderland manager. The Black Cats are reportedly wanting to name their new boss this weekend and Allardyce will be their sixth manager in four years if he is appointed. Personally I feel Allardyce would be a decent appointment. The 60-year-old has plenty of Premier League experience and enjoyed a reasonably successful spell at West Ham from 2011 to 2015....

Why can’t Sunderland defend?

Some people say there are three certainties in life; death, taxes and the fact Sunderland can’t defend. The latter has only been added to the list this season, but looks set to feature for some time. So just what is going wrong with the Sunderland defence? Well, the only easy way to put it is we do not have any quality within the back four. Our “strongest” line-up, whatever that may be, will always be susceptible to awful mistakes and...

The “Mag Slayer” returns to Sunderland

Many pundits slammed Sunderland’s transfer business in the last couple of days of the transfer window and harshly criticised the two signings the club made. However I, for one, think the business we did was a lot more successful than in previous years. In recent seasons, deadline day has not served us well. Ricky Alvarez, Benjani and Sortirios Kyrgiakos to name a few. Fabio Borini joined a few days before deadline day and DeAndre...
